Location Scouting for Architectural Photography

Location scouting is a critical task for architectural photographers. While it isn’t something that NEEDS to happen each time, when we are given the opportunity to digest the environment and pre-visualize PRIOR to the shoot, you will almost always get better results. Scouting doesn’t always need to happen days or weeks before the shoot, but…

Corporate Office Photography in Downtown Nashville

My client for this shoot was global financial firm, Alliance Bernstein. They recently moved their headquarters to Nashville from NYC and the employees just started moving in toward the end of 2021, so they wanted to document the new offices for internal communication, marketing, and recruitment before it was completely full.

Downtown Nashville Architecture Photography from the Sky: Part 3: Nissan Stadium + Nashville Skyline

The downtown Nashville skyline and the Nissan Stadium (completed in 1999 by HOK) have been photographed hundreds of thousands, if not millions of times.

Downtown Nashville Architecture Photography from the Sky – Part 1: Music City Center

Architecture by: Thompson, Ventulett, Stainback & Associates, Inc. There isn’t a bad angle of Music City Center… but it is REALLY challenging to not shoot an angle that hasn’t already been photographed. At one point I just decided to put my drone in the air to see what I could find from there. Even with…

Photographing the Changing Light on the Cambria Hotel in Downtown Nashville

Last week I posted about how I have been exploring Nashville as an architectural photographer. I shared some scouting images of the Marriott building in downtown Nashville as well as some final snapshots I made.

Exploring Nashville as an Architecture Photographer

As an architecture photographer, I am constantly paying attention to the built environment – whether it is where I live or in the cities that I visit. This is my first time actually moving to a completely different city, and I find myself not only looking at and paying attention to it but studying it…
